It depletes a neuropeptide known as Substance P (hmm, could that be Substance Pain? LOL), which is part of what makes you feel that pain. There are capsaicin creams on the market that you can try or, if you know what you’re doing, you can blend it with one of your own creams by crushing up the cayenne pepper and adding it in. Be sure to wear protective gloves if you’re going to do this because you wouldn’t want to touch the capsaicin with your bare finger and then touch your face. Ouch! Once you apply the cream, 3-4 times/day for 1 or 2 weeks, you’ll feel a burning sensation initially with the release of Substance P. Don’t worry.
